Businessweek's article on statins
http://www.businessweek.com/magazine...ex_to p+story

So much out there....basically I would (not that I am a Dr nor does my advice replace professional medical opinions....sorry needed the FDA disclaimer there) avoid statins like the plague as they are overhyped and a marketing/money making gimick with severe side effects. Diet and lifestyle is just as effective and come with side effects like more money in your wallet, happiness, freedom from drugs and actually having more mental clarity (as my mom went on statins because her DR basically forced her...and then couldn't focus all day long...now she is off and has back her mental clarity. It's serious stuff.)
